Blessed sleep to which we all return

And I will give you rest

Sweet in her ways

Trust in God

May the peace of the Lord be with you

Generous of heart, constant of faith

I will lift up thine eyes unto the hills

We lived together in happiness we rest together in peace

All things change, but God remains

A beloved Mother (Father) (Son) (Daughter)

God is our refuge and our strength

She (He) touched everyone with special love and kindness

All things to the glory of God

Love lives on

And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest

A free spirit

Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal

Precious are the memories of (name)

What we keep in memory is ours forever

An inspiration to all

How beautiful life was to me

May she (he) be remembered as she (he) remembered others

Wonderful was your love for us

Loving memories last forever

I have fought the good fight

I have finished my course

I have kept the faith

Love makes memory eternal

He (she) loved and was loved

Too well loved to ever be forgotten

To live in the hearts of others is not to die

Rest, O weary traveler

For with the dawn comes great joy

I am not afraid of tomorrow
For I have seen yesterday
And I love today

Step softly, a dream lies buried here

A gentle man (woman)

She (he) touched the lives of many

While we have time, let us do good

Those we love remain with us

For love itself lives on

His courage, his smile, his grace
Gladdened the hearts of those
Who have the privilege of loving him

God grant us the serenity to accept
The things we cannot change
The courage to change the things we can
And the wisdom to know the difference

I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
